Kutchwork

Last week I was flipping through the pages of my studio journal and found a half finished design for my red CYL (colour your life) collage. Now I finally knew how to finish it, I only needed an embroidered sample of kutchwork. This is the same Gingham fabric as my chicken scratch experiments. I used stranded DMC for my first trial. Then I tried a perle 5. This was the look I wanted! I like the different colours of the holes.

I attached them both in my studio journal with the notes about the threads I used.

I used Deepa's very detailed tutorial for kutchwork, you can find part 1 and part 2 on her blog.
